Royal Asarlik Beach
46 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Recently booked a holiday with my sister to Altinkum, unfortunately on our arrival to Borum Airport I slipped and sustained a fractured tibia resulting in a 3 day hospital stay. Due to the lenghty distance we were transfered to the Asarlik Hotel for easier access to the hospital. Well what can I say? The hotel is absolutely fabulous, the staff are fantastic always willing to help and always cheerful after working long hours, they cannot do enough for you. The rooms were clean and welcoming with maid service on a daily basis. The food was exceptional with lots of choices for all, you could never go hungry. We will definately return next year, cannot wait."

"Fantastic hotel that offers an above average all-inclusive service for its guests combined with friendly helpful staff creating a great atmosphere. Excellent room with sea view that was cleaned daily and towels and bedding changed. First class food with plenty of choice to suit all tastes which was available 24/7. The animation team provided an acceptable level of entertainment on the evening which attracted plenty of guest participation. Having taken a number of all-inclusive holidays over the past years I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel which I would be happy to use in the future.

"I was slightly disappointed with the accomodation. It was definately not 4 star!!!! We were given a room with a balcony but there was no sunlight just lots of other balconies!!!! To get good views you will need to request a beach view room. The food was just OK. We stayed at the hotel for 1 week and I wouldn't use this hotel again. Turkey on the other hand was great. The locals were very friendly and just couldn't do enough for you. Be aware when returning from Bodrum Airport, 2 sandwiches will set you back 28 Turkish Lira approx Â£14.00 !!!!"

"just had a wonderful holiday at this hotel. the food was great lot's of choice and even our two fussy children found plenty to eat. The staff were very friendly, helpful and so polite. We shared our room with the children but there was plenty of room. the rooms were clean the air conditioning unit was a bit old so a bit noisy at night and some times it switched off when there were power cuts in the night,but overall not too much of a problem. You could always get a sun lounger on the beach but more tricky by the pool we had to do the early morning raid to get loungers pool side!
We tended to eat lunch out as a bit pricey in the hotel. it was very,very hot in August but a nice breeze from the sea. Just be careful with the kids we had factor 50 on our daughter and made her wear a t- shirt over her costume and she still got burnt and also dehydrated.
we had some great trips better value to buy them from the ticket booths in Gumbet than from the tour reps. jeep safari great fun and scuba diving was excellent our 9 year old was able to have a go and our 7 year old did snorkling. with the scuba diving there was one instructer per diver.
Dolmus buses easy to use and very cheap. bodrum castle is a must to go and look round but get there early to beat the heat.
Once you get used to haggling there are bargains to be had. although shopkeepers try to get you in their shops they sre not aggressive or intimidating.
we would recommend this hotel and would consider going back ourselves."

"This was my third time to stay in Gumbet but the first time at this hotel. I have recomended the Arselik Beach to several friends.It was clean and very well laid out. There were lots of steps but th view from the balcony was wonderfull. The food was always fresh and well laid out.The rooms are big and modern also the pools were in a garden setting with plenty of shade if needed. I am hoping to return next year."

"Great location. Private beach, always a sun bed availble by the pool and the beach. Staff friendly and very welcoming, will do there best to ensure you enjoy yourself and have all you need. Good boat trips with tour operator. Only down fall, the food, Not a great choice and the same day in. Being a vegetarian, very limited to choice. Hotel area and rooms where spotless, very clean and all staff were welcoming. Rooms cleaned and towels changed daily. Free beach towels to use.
Local area has all you need, pubs, shops, entertainment and great beaches. Would definetly recommend the area and the hotel, just beaware of the food. Will be back next year, really enjoyed it. Lovely weather. Rooms good size and good views. I couldnt beleve how close we where to the beach. Overall excellent holdiay. Great to be able to use the Royal Asarlik facilities if you wished, these were so modern and new. "

"Great time at this hotel, 5th time in gumbet but first on all inclusive basis and first time at this hotel, staff were very helpful and very nice,there was 6 adults and 2 small children in our party, they loved the kids, rooms were lovely,cleaned every day be careful of the mini bar there is nothing free in there and they tried to charge us for stuff we didnt have, no problem in sorting it out though, food was lovely only had one week should imagine it gets a bit samey if two weeks there, will certainly be going back there, the staff shows are something to see, they are so bad you cant help but laugh and enjoy in a strange sort of way, great value for money, there are two parts too the hotel a modern part and a nostalgic part, if you have trouble walking ask at reception before checking in which part you are at, rooms to the nostalgic part are quite a walk away, but then again if like me you only go back to change in the evening its not as if you will be going back and forth all day if you are a bacardi drinker like me its best to take some from duty free with you as they dont have any in the all inclusive they do not have any locally produced rum....only gin, brandy,beer,vodka and cocktails, please be aware all cocktails even pina colada's are vodka based..bad hangovers, great idea to supply the beach towels no problems getting them all nice and clean, sunbeds at the sister hotel easy to get and waiters happy to get you beds if none are around the pool. plenty of sunbeds on the beach, my husbands favorite place was in the love bar at the corner table over looking the beach watching the world go by, so relaxing...GREAT HOLIDAY....."

"Stayed in this hotel for 1 week with my sister. Had a lovely time. The food is nice, you can eat all day long if you like. There is a 24 hour bar which is very dangerous if you like to drink! You can have wine, beer, vodka, gin etc (very large measures) I asked for small ones they were so big. Entertainment team are very good and friendly. Entertainment can be a little strange, but we found it funny. Things like acting out sceens from the the Body Guard film & Tina Turner acts! Pool is lovely, but it is hard to get a sunbed. They were always available on the beach though which is nice. Staff are very good, but be warned if you are a two or more females staying there, be prepared to get chatted to alot!! Hotel was full when we stayed their and had a really good vibe. Would recommend this hotel. "

"My friend and I stayed here in late May last year, we thought this hotel was amazing!! The bedrooms were very clean and spacious. We had a view which over looked the sea and the pool, we couldnt of asked for a better view. The food was basic but filling, we found the staff were more than happy to do anything for you we even had room service. However we did find after a while having our photos taken frequently became a bit annoying. Overall we had a fanstatic holiday and would return again."
